pabster replied to your link: Man who defaced Tate Modern’s Rothko canvas says he’s added value
I can’t make out what it says. The fact that it happened and nobody noticed is pretty awful too
It says, “Vladimir Umanets, a potential piece of yellowism”. Apparently he’s part of a duo whose come up with some art movement that they’ve called Yellowism. They even have a tumblr account, if you’re interested. http://www.thisisyellowism.com/
After reading through some of the links they’ve got on their site, this whole fiasco is starting to look like publicity stunt, for this Vladmir Umanets, to get attention for his movement and their upcoming exhibition. Yes, it gets people talking but what a appalling way to go about getting attention.
